The quickest way to get to know Android Studio is to use it to develop an android app. We'll start with a variation on the "Hello, World" app: a little mobile app that displays a "Welcome to Android App" message.

Create New Project

From our setup so far, you should still have Android Studio running with the Welcome to Android Studio dialog box. From here, click Start a new Android Studio project. Android Studio will respond with the Create New Project dialog box shown in Figure 2.
